IEEE Talk on HTML5 at VBIT, Hyderabad

Last Saturday I got an opportunity to speak on HTML5 at Vignana Bharathi Institute of  Technology at Hyderabad. They have an active IEEE Student branch in the college and keep organizing tech events like this.

Photobucket

I borrowed slides from html5rocks.com where they have a lot of interactive slides with inline demos and keep updating very frequently with news features and demos.

My version of the slides were a subset of the original ones and modified on top of the ones used in SREC early this year.


It was very good to see students paid a lot of attention during the talks and had a lot of interest in html5 and web in general. It was very easy to communicate as they has a very good understanding of fundamentals of HTML already. Photos are also posted in the Facebook album of the student branch.
